No fair! You need to compare XSLT against Javascript+DOM and all of XSL
against Javascript+DOM+CSS.

If your interest is in going from XML->display then I think that "all of
XSL" is certainly a simpler route. Can you imagine, for example, a single
book that goes into great detail on JavaScript AND the DOM AND CSS? I
think that it would be rather large.
